The cv settings in the general config (CV control) are all unchecked. On the settings screen in the "CV Settings" CV on/off is checked'.
The accel is set at 10 the  Velocity  is set at 350 ipm

I am using CV mode and all options are off.
Should the motors all be set at the same speed ?
Should I see G2, G3  in the Gcode?
 Does the font selection matter? I am using a True Type font.
90 degree bit  1.25  diameter  1.2 IPS  on the feedrate

General Mach Discussion / V carving using Mach 3
« on: May 06, 2011, 12:42:56 PM »
I really hope that someone here can help me get this set up right.
I have a problem with v carving and I think that it may be the mach software.  If i try to v carve a name for a sign I get real a cut that takes a considerable amount of time and jerky motion out of the machine .  I have tried every thing that I know and I have never been happy .
I am cutting on a shopbot machine with an acension control box using mach 3 R3.042.040
windows xp sp3 1 gig ram
Is every one else doing v carving that they are happy with?
Is there a check list of settings that need to be verified?
I did have better results using the old shopbot software even though it was slow and  noisey.
Any help would be helpful

General Mach Discussion / Automatics z zero
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:25:34 AM »
Does anyone know if it is possible to have the cnc move to a specific location after a tool change and "automatically" zero it's self in the z direction?  I have an Acension control box. Can this be modified in the z zero routine?  We use a z zero plate now.
Thanks for your help

 Hi ger21

Does the tempest program install into mach 3?
I downloaded a file from the thread and i am not sure what I am supposed to do with it , I must be missing something here.
